Following an open call 13 artists were selected for 12month membership. Membership operates as an extended residency during which time each member can book use of GH facilities on a democratic basis. Membership offers artists access to the support, work, accommodation, facilities, insurance and the chance to work alongside one another in the development of site responsive works. The Good Hatchery is a collaborative and expansive art project directed by artists Carl Giffney and Ruth E. Lyons since its foundation in 2007.
Along with the open call one recent graduate was selected for the annual ALLOY prize. This year the award went to Ciaran Kavanagh from Crawford College of Art and Design Cork.
